How well was the paste spread out originally?

Originally it was covering the whole die.

Also, the pea size mother works well on the CPU, since it is normally covering the IHS and doesn't have to be perfect. I highly suggest applying it by spreading it, and then using the edge of a bank card or like item, and making it as even as possible to verify that 100% of the die is covered. On tiny air bubble or edge not being properly covered of the die can cause issues.

Yes, I know.. so and so said the pea size worked for them.. good for them.. I tried it and it had a large airbubble on one edge.. but no worries, the temp measuring placement is the center of the die, so the card was "Only running at 45c" and failed. Properly applied the TIM later and the temps stayed at 45c max, and never crashed again.

Well, I did notice that heatsink has started to get warmer to the touch than before. Added, I doubt I will see serious temperature changes. Are my temperatures even normal or not?

I did a search on Witcher 3 and Batman AK running stable with overclocked 980 Ti SLI and None SLI and came out with little to nothing. Yet on the flip side, I get tons of feedback with instability with the slightest overclock. Anyway, I did try and roll back to driver version 353.62 but I still TDR. Despite reports that I would even get a better overclock is completely unfound.

The more time I spend on these cards, the more I believe that the overclocking Maxwell is just limited to benchmarking, nothing more. When gaming, I sense everyone just goes back to stock/factory OC clocks.

Now what is causing these instabilities is a major mystery that no one managed to answer. Sure you can have a lot of reasons and a lot of people might be unstable for different causes. Still, there is that big group who are having an exact same reason of instability. That specific reason somehow points to driver + Maxwell design. The fact that NVidia never came out and acknowledged it hints to such an issue. They aren't ready to have another 970 fiasco at their hands.

Do note, I have tested this for months if you factor in the original 980 (I had an EVGA 980 SC SLI setup).

I even read Kingpin post blaming the drivers. I even suspected that NVidia just didn't care about Windows 7 and so upgraded to Windows 10 to find the same issue.

I know that this is some conspiracy theory on my end, but if you do some research, you might end up with the same conclusion...


Here is GTA 5 running at 1557mhz for 2 hours at stock voltage. I collected all the nuclear waste and then ran around the country side, which is harder on the GPU than the city for some reason.

Sorry to go a little off topic but bro you have one hell of a rig. Hats off to you!

Thanks man.

Did you use the pea method or spread it out?
It makes a difference.

You temps are still a bit hot and it's likely do to the case then or bd paste spread. Can you send pic of your case?the inside?

I used pea size method. No spreading. Previously, the led, which was set to temp, would reach green when idle. Now it idles at Orange. So not sure if I made things better or not. I'll take some screens of case both inside and outside when I at home.

You need to redo with spread. The pea method is not ok on a gpu die. You need full coverage over the complete die.

At this point though, I'm inclined to believe it's the ambient/case temperatures.

At this point he still needs to do the paste properly. It makes a huge difference.

Thrn we can proceed to case air flow.

I always do a straight line down the center of the GPU and it's always worked well for me.
